Type  Modern limited edition fountain pen

Product Name  LB1 #23/100. Here's the page for this pen on the Classic Pens web site.

Manufacturer and Year  Sailor, Japan, 2003. 

Length  5-7/8"

Filling System  Cartridge/converter. A Sailor converter is installed.

Color  Pearlized celadon green, black, and red acrylic - the same material used in the Sheaffer Balance LE. Gold plated trim.

Nib  21k Naginata Cross Emperor, marked NAG. Very hard to find, if not impossible. Sailor's description of this nib says: "double layered nib with unique cross point design on the tipping provides a very juicy broad horizontal stroke and a fine tip in the upside-down position. The addition of the solid gold Emperor tab over the top of the nib provides additional ink reservoir for constant smooth writing and ink flow."

Condition  Excellent condition, in collector's box, with lots of paperwork. Beautiful, almost like new. There are a few flaws in the pen. There are two hairline cracks, fairly typical for this Sheaffer (?) material, originating at the top of the clip where it attaches to the cap (see final two photos below). They curve down and flare out. There are also some light scratches on the cap, and we are hesitant to smooth them out due to the delicate nature of the material. The variations in the material keep them from being obvious at a distance, but under close inspection they are visible. See photos below for details.

Pen ships in original packaging - a handmade brown leather covered storage box with outer cardboard sleeve, a numbered certificate (the number is also engraved on the pen), warranty certificate, and an informational booklet.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
